Lookout Books author Edith Pearlman will give the keynote address at the North Carolina Writers Network fall conference, held Friday, Nov. 2 through Sunday, Nov. 4 at the Embassy Suites in Cary. Pearlman’s collection of short stories, Binocular Vision, won the 2011 National Book Critics Circle Award for fiction and was a Finalist for the National Book Award, among many other honors.
The fall conference is the Network’s biggest annual event, featuring more than 25 workshops in creative nonfiction, fiction, and poetry; master classes in creative nonfiction (led by Elaine Neil Orr), fiction (led by Jill McCorkle) and poetry (led by 2012 North Carolina Literary Hall of Fame inductee Kathryn Stripling Byer); one-on-one sessions with a publishing or bookselling professional, and more.
The Network is the state’s oldest and largest literary arts services organization devoted to writers at all stages of development.
